Upcoming Mozilla Marketplace lacks Linux support; open-source fix in the works

Back in March, Mozilla outlined plans to further integrate web apps into Firefox to complement its upcoming Marketplace. And while the web store will launch with Windows and OS X compatibility, the browser has -- at least for the time being -- snubbed Linux.

If you know anything about Linux distros, you'll know that most use Firefox as the default web browser. Communities behind these distros are not pleased at all.

Though Mozilla execs have expressed their desire to add Linux support eventually, community contributors are already working on a patch to add compatibility for GNOME desktop.
